Meditating together is easier than alone. In a group, a Sangha, you relax more quickly and it is easier to meditate than when you sit at home in a room where your daily life takes place.
On Monday evenings we meditate together. This meditation is very suitable for beginners, so don't hesitate to come if you've never meditated before. The door is open from 7.15 pm and the meditation starts at 7.30 pm. We start with a topic from Buddhist philosophy and then meditate in silence for 45 minutes. Afterwards there is time for tea and conversation.

Heart Chakra Meditation
The Heart Chakra, also known as Anahata, is the energetic center located in the center of the chest. It is the fourth chakra and represents love, compassion, unity and acceptance.
When the Heart chakra is open and balanced, we feel love and connection with others and the world around us. Blockages in this chakra can lead to feelings of loneliness, sadness and separation. It is therefore important to devote sufficient time and attention to opening and balancing this powerful chakra.
The Heart Chakra Meditation of Karunesh is based on meditations from Sufism. It has six phases, the first four of which consist of simple movements. You will be guided by me and the music and we will finish with a sitting meditation and deep relaxation. Afterwards there is time for tea and conversation.
Costs: €15.00 p.p. (If you have a ten-time card, you can use it for this class. Members get discount and pay €13.50.)
